Lately the trend towards framing with embroidery hoops has been all over design blogs. Here's a simple way to create something in under 10 minutes that you can display on the wall. 

1) Gather your materials. I used muslin, which is a very versatile (and inexpensive) fabric that can easily be altered

Give1 2) Cut a piece of the fabric that is at least 2 inches bigger than the hoop.
Give2 3) Put paper towels or a mat underneath your fabric and begin inking the middle area.
Give3 4) Once you get the coverage you desire, let it dry in the sunshine or by using a blow dryer.
Give4 5) Once dry, adhere your Patchem to the center of the inked space.
Give6 6) Then add your letter stickers.
Give7 Give8 7) Secure the fabric in to the hoop centering around the embellished area.
Give9 8) Turn the hoop over and trim the excess fabric.
Give9a 9) All done and ready for hanging to cuten up your scrap space or give to a friend!
Give9b The perfect gift created in under 10 minutes - now there's a project I can jump on board with!
